Schererville DUI - Traffic Ticket Lawyers

Traffic Offense Attorneys - Lake County, IN

We serve Northwest Indiana and the surrounding towns and counties

In today’s society, it is almost a requirement to drive. The option to simply not drive, in other words, is not a viable one for many of us. And while taking public transportation everywhere might be an option in certain cities, in others there is little in the way of options, which means that it is dubious whether the system will really get you where you need to go in the first place. Additionally, many of us have long commutes to and from work these days, which means that we have to be able to drive simply to protect our livelihoods.

 

Do you become worried and anxious at the thought of losing your license? That’s a natural reaction – many of us feel that way. And yet there are still some people who see traffic violations as minor, and attempt to take care of them on their own. While this might work for that minor ticket you know isn’t going to be thrown out, but that also doesn’t put a lot of points on your license, it is a terrible strategy to play when the stakes are higher. If you end up with multiple tickets, you need to start looking into legal help. It might not seem like any big deal, but keep in mind that every ticket paid is essentially like a guilty plea that you have entered on your own behalf. If you get too many of these, the results could be devastating. And if you end up with criminal traffic offenses, something like aggressive driving, then you won’t even have the option to simply pay a ticket.

 

At Funk & Wendlinger, LLC, we know that we are all human. And, as humans, we all make mistakes at some point or another. That doesn’t mean that we should all have our licenses removed over them. But you should understand that if you do not seek legal help as quickly as possible, that is exactly what could happen. When it comes to traffic offenses and violations, you should speak with one of our experienced attorneys to determine the best way to handle your ticket or violation. We can help you prepare a solid defense to help reduce or eliminate long term consequences from the traffic issue you are facing.

 

What are some consequences of traffic tickets or violations?

Depending upon the issue in question, there is a wide variety of consequences that you might face as a result of traffic violations or tickets.

 

Some of these include the following:

  • Hefty fines

  • Should you run into a felony traffic violation or a misdemeanor, you could face jail time

  • Increasing amounts of points on your license

  • The suspension of your license

  • An increased insurance premium

  • The loss of your CDL (if applicable)

  • A higher chance of being found guilty of negligence should you be sued in civil court over a traffic violation that led to an accident

 

As you can see, there are many potential consequences that the perpetual traffic violator might encounter. This is why you should consider hiring a traffic attorney as quickly as possible. This is true even if you are facing your first offense. In fact, sometimes calling us for a first a offense is the best option at your disposal, as we are more likely to have luck reducing or eliminating charges if you are a first time offender. If you just pay the fine, then any future accidents will just be looked at as the actions of a repeat offender.

 

If you find yourself receiving tickets and facing charges, then you are probably being accused of at at least one of the following.

 

These are some of the most common kinds of traffic violations in Indiana:

  • Speeding

  • Driving on a revoked or suspended license

  • Reckless driving

  • Aggressive driving

  • Left the scene of an accident

  • Habitual traffic violations

 

Finally, you should keep in mind that all of the above will put more points on your license. This is a serious issue because it can eventually result in probation or even suspension of your license. Additionally, drivers will many points are seen as high risk drivers. That means that their insurance premiums tend to be much higher than those without points on their license.
